Renewable energy refers to energy sources that are replenished naturally on a human timescale, providing a sustainable and environmentally friendly alternative to finite, non-renewable resources like fossil fuels. The most common types of renewable energy include solar, wind, hydropower, geothermal, and bioenergy, which harness energy from the sun, wind, water, Earth’s heat, and organic matter, respectively. Renewable energy technologies have the potential to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions, mitigate climate change, and promote energy security and independence. As research and development continue to advance and costs decrease, renewable energy is becoming an increasingly important component of the global energy mix, paving the way for a cleaner and more sustainable future.
On the surface, RE:WIRED is a renewable energy, tech, innovation, and sustainability blog. Below the surface, we are writing about the interconnectivity of everything, people to the environment, the economy, and back to people. Our goal is to create a viable and sustainable future full of abundance, which can be achieved only through education and collaboration.
